    Computer scientists are working on a series of research proposals that
    they hope will result in advances comparable in significance to the
    Human Genome project.

    The UK Computing Research Committee, a joint expert panel of the
    Institute of Electrical Engineers and the British Computer Society, is
    working with the Council of Professors and Heads of Computing to start
    seven new projects.

    The hope is that some, or at least one, of the initiatives will be
    taken forward to become a Grand Challenge - a major, long term project
    that will create great advances in computer science.
